At 10 a.m., our taxi picked us up and drove us to the Toulouse airport to pick up our rental car. Soon after, we were on our way north to the tiny village of Saint Cirq-Lapopie, where we've rented a cottage for a week. Leaving the big city behind was a relief, and soon we were driving past rolling green fields dotted with livestock and old stone farm houses. Although the village is only about ninety miles north of Toulouse, it seems like a million years away. Here's where we're hanging out...a cottage that overlooks the Lot River. It's pretty cold here today, and we've had rain off and on. We walked to dinner this evening, and hard a hearty, hot cassoulet, which was just perfect!
More photos of the village tomorrow. Until then.
